not commit. among the believers, not just defense attorneys, but the brooklyn d.a., who is going before the court today to ask for the release of this man, who was convicted in 1991 for the murder of rabbi warsburger, who was 58 years old. a reporter survivor of auschwitz and champion for jews in brooklyn. a robber gunned him down and got away in his car. detectives say they had rantas' confession, eyewitnesss, and more. but as the d.a. began digging, he determined ranta was the wrong man. mary snow is in brooklyn. mary, how did this case fall apart? >> reporter: well, really, don, the turning point and what set this in motion was an eyewitness who identified david ranta in a police lineup came forward two years ago to say that he was told by police who to pick. he was 13 at the time of that lineup. he phoned to say it was weighing on him and a police detective had told him, this is his words, to pick the guy with the big nose. the attorney for david ranta then went to the brooklyn d.a.'s office relaying this information to the conviction integrity unit. they were looking to review case
-conditioning in iraq and afghanistan. >> in 2002, richard pearl, chairman of the defense policy board said we are not talking about a massive ip vags along the lines of '91. we're talking about a much more modest effort in which the united states would assist iraqis in freeing their country. let me get over to paul about the manpower and loss of lives. and the world you live with. 31,000 wounded. about 600 amputees. give me a sense of your own personal experience with what the personal cost of this war was. besides the loss of 4,000 american service people? >> we didn't see too many of those air conditioners. when i was in iraq, i lost friends. we lost colleagues. we saw a lot of carnage and destruction. and i think the real untold story is the price we're going to pay for generations to come. a million veterans, including myself, served in iraq and are now home. and we all know that there was a real shortage of planning on the ground in iraq. they didn't have enough interpreters. didn't have enough body armor. didn't have enough humvees. there's a shortage now on the home front as veterans a

defense of marriage act or doma which defines federal acknowledgment of same-sex marriag marriages. at stake? federal marriage benefits for those who are legally married. the arguments laid out before the nine justices this week will establish a furd precedence for the next chapter for the fight in marriage equality. this is a watershed moment. but it is just part of a long and continuing struggle because the struggle has already been quite long. in the summer of 1969, five days of riots sparked by the aggressive anti-guy police action in new york city founded a battle cry that helped to launch the guy rights movement. a year later, a couple in minnesota was denied a marriage license because state law limited marriage to persons of the opposite sex. their case made to the u.s. supreme court back in 1972. it was dismissed without so much as a written opinion. the court ruled that same sex couples have no constitutional rights married and that the legal challenge itself failed to raise a substantial federal question at all. but the struggle continued. it would be another 14 years bef
. a defense psychologist says jodi arias can't remember killing her ex-boyfriend because she developed ptsd and amnesia as a result of all of the stress she was under. arias admits she killed travis alexander but says it was in self-defense. this is something a lot of people have been following every step of the way. if you've got the prosecutor now really going after this witness. richard samuels. now back on the stand, yes? >> reporter: yeah. and the grilling continues. juan martinez is not letting up at all, because this is an important witness, suzanne, for the defense. outside of jodi arias herself who was on the stand for 18 days, this is the second-most important witness because this is the person that is going to supposedly explain to the jurors why jodi arias who has a photographic memory jurors why jodi arias who has a photographic memory about everything that happened to her in her life can't remember stabbing travis alexander 29 times. this is why juan martinez is going after him so hard and will continue to for the rest of most of day and i'm assuming because he has been meticu
is a whole other thing. i haven't heard a constructive argument in defense of -- >> i'll give you one. how would you like to be a police officer up against a semiautomatic. >> i wouldn't. i don't know why you're asking me that question. i wouldn't want to be that person at all. they're not going to waste their political capital on the assault weapons ban. and keep in mind, it polls at 9 on%. what else polls at 90%. >> we're all together on this one. it's about background checks. if you care get ahold of your congressman or senator, and say you want a new requirement or newtown means nothing. thank you both. >>> coming up, standing in the school house door, for all the republicans, hopeful talk of changes to be made and lessons learned, about you when it comes to abortion rights and gale marriage, their tomorrow is looking a lot like their yesterday. legislatures are moving backwards or abortion rights. the gop leadership is nowhere, anywhere to be heard of on same-sex marriage. >>> also months after the election there's a fight over the leadership of the rep party between two newcomers. we
, will be hearing arguments on two landmark cases. the federal defense of marriage act or doma and proposition 8. so what can next week mean for politicians? mark murray is standing by. so mark, if the court strikes down these laws, do you think that could potentially help politicians in both parties? >> i think you could see more governors, more state legislatures feel like they might have free reign for gay marriage in their states. craig, i will say you're already seeing such a rush on this in states with democratic control. and the change in attitudes has been striking. in our own "wall street journal" poll, 30% of the country supported gay marriage in 2004. that is now a majority. 51%. so a full 20 or more percentage points increase in just nine years. that's amazing in social attitudes and in american politics. >> it kind of reminds me, when roe v. wade happened, a lot of politicians could say this is settled law. so you don't have to spend a great deal of time engaged in debates with a potential political opponent over it. if the court, if it keeps these laws intact, how could that complicate
what self defense firearms to own. >> if you include that debate with the gun control discussion we just had with the congressman, there's only so much space one has to make one's argument. is bloomberg giving up some of that political capital by going after guns and sugary drinks all together, you lose some of that gravitas he needs. >> i don't believe with him on the sugary drinks campaign, but he is exactly right on the issue of gun violence. this isn't about mike bloomberg, it is about the parents of children murdered in newtown, the people that died from gun violence since newtown, gabby giffords and 80 million that support background checks, including the majority of republicans. it is not an issue of bloomberg versus nra money, it is an issue about doing what the american people want done. >> karl rove over the weekend, you have taken a listen no doubt, had this advice for democrats on gun control on nbc. let's listen. >> you want to get something done, stop scaring people. don't say we're keeping a registry of all of the guns. >> stop it. it is not scaring people. >> others
. defensive end elvis dumervil's contract with denver arrived in denver six minutes late, making him a free agent. the ipad has replaced playbooks. but the nfl still uses fax machines for the contracts. >> the good news is that several other teams are interested in him. he averaged 39 sacks year. this weekend, he sacked his agent. >> good for him. >>> now two daredevils have pulled off a death defying stunt, soaring like eagles high above rio. >> they had special wing suits to help them glide through the air. they didn't stop there. they thread a needle through these two tiny openings between the sky scrapers. >> lucky for them, by the way, the weather cooperated. because an unexpected gust of wind could have made this a much different ending. >> just incredible. >> now, john, you said you wouldn't do that. >> no, i would not do that. >> not in a -- >> well, never say never, but i don't think so. >> i don't think i would do it either. ir to healthcare written by people just like you. no company can pay to be on angie's list, so you can trust what you're reading. angie's list is like having
this is effective. is that a solid defense? >> people are going to look at about three years ago when plaxico burress was prosecuted and new york waved its fwlag of our no issuance policy ned, there's not a place stricter with gun rights. at the time mayor bloomberg and his other colleagues were saying we have the toughest laws in the country. look at the crime and how it's gone down. and some of the people are saying on the side of stopping this practice, hey, which one is it here. or is it other factories that have nothing to do with stopping people. what they're also saying is you're replacing one crime with another crime. because for go to somebody that's innocent of a crime, a high school student on his way to school, and frisk them and search them, it has a terrible impact in and of itself is a kind of crime. >> this not only would have ram if i indications for new york city, but other cities. i know a number of other cities are considering it, as well.cit. i know a number of other cities are considering it, as well. would this ruling have ramifications throughout? >> it will. and the r
evidence and should only be allowed if substantiated and directly related to a defense, not as a means to tarnish the image of the victim in the eyes of the jury. has travis alexander's image been destroyed by his trial, by this trial? >> it has. and i don't like what's happened to travis here. but this is our system. here's the problem. she needs that right to a fair trial. everybody does in this country. we're all entitled to it. if we get into the nuances of her claim wasn't substantiated, we have a problem with the fair trial rights. imagine somebody abused and they kill someone, i'm not saying jodi, because her story is full of lies, but let's say that happens, and that person never talked to anybody, never told anybody about it, does that mean we wouldn't let her use claims that were unsubstantiated because she didn't tell somebody else or talk to someone else? that's an example, but you got to preserve somebody's right to put on a case. >> sunny? >> yeah, i completely agree. i hate it when i was trying these kinds of cases, these domestic violence cases where you had a victim, a

that if entitlements continue to go up and nothing is done about it what is going to happen is forget about defense but look at nondefense discretionary spending. this is education, spending all of the programs that you are passionate about that will be squeezed as entitlement spending is larger and larger. >> they will be squeezed. if we look beyond, look at 2025, 2030, something has to give. we can't keep squeezing nondefense, ndd, nondefense discretionary. that is already pret itty tight. so something will have to give. some combination of higher revenues, finding ways to save on entitlement. not necessarily benefit cuts but ways to save money on entitlements. use the bargaining power of medicare, fine. that's worth talking about but not a reason to not do deficit spending to support the economy now. >> the argument would be, and this is the argue made by bob rubin and many others that do some stimulus spending but put in place a long-term plan to ensure the markets that you have a plan. you are not hostage to fortune in case interest rates spike suddenly. off process in place that allows it to

to a question the president seemed a little defensive about why the united states during his administration has not authorized military force to stop the slaughter in syria. listen to this. >> i think what your question may be suggesting is why haven't we simply gone in militarily? and i think it's fair to say that the united states often finds itself in a situation where if it goes in militarily then it's criticized for going in militarily. if it doesn't, then people say, why aren't you doing something militarily? and, you my response at this stage is to make sure that what we do contributes to bringing them into the blothem -- an end to the bloodshed as quickly as possible. >> did you get the sense the president is on the same page as far as syria is concerned with jordan king abdullah nearly half a million syrian refugees have poured into jordan over these past two years. >> dealing with the refugee crisis, yes. the president says we'll send more money. we'll try to get more humanitarian aid. i'll pick up the phone and get you more help. nobody knows what page they're on when it comes to th
secretary of state, its secretary of defense. the case was made for going to war with iraq. you know, in a time of war the american people rally around the president. but as more information came out, as more facts and corrections of the record came out, the american people saw that they were in essence lied to about getting into a war, not one of necessity but one of choice. and so i think going forward, particularly with the saber rattling with iran and what's being talked about with north korea and its belligerence, the american people are going to be very cautious. i should say more cautious than they were in 2003 about supporting another war being waged by the united states. >> our power panel today jonathan capehart, margie o'mara, chip saltsman, thank you all very much. stay with msnbc for continuing coverage of the president's trip to the middle east. >>> coming up next congress works to avoid a government shutdown but no matter what they do voters are giving them a thumbs down. we'll be joined by congresswoman blackburn next. plus, sentencing day for a teen who went on a kil

attorney that was released last night. the paternos believe "any attempt to use this recording as a defense of joe paterno is misguided and inappropriate." a source tells me that came after they consulted with a child sex abuse advocate who had been working with them on this case for a long time. >> do we know if there's anything else that is revealing that is going to come out of this doc that would give us any sense of jerry sandusky's thinking and his mindset regarding all this? >> i think it's important to note that this documentary isn't definitely going to happen. the filmmaker who did this interview is trying to raise the money to do the documentary. so it might not even come to fruition. but at this point he says his entire motive is to give joe paterno his "day in court," which jerry sandusky already had, but a lot of people of course believe joe paterno was wronged. >> all right. sara ganim, thank you so much. we appreciate it. >>> there was a crash, injuries and then a brawl. this is all on track at nascar. wait until you see it. copd makes it hard to breathe, but with advair, i'
